we attended Chianti Classico - 2 hour wine classes. If you are coming to visit Tuscany and like wine, you must start your trip with it! During the classes you will learn about most popular wines in the region, classification of wines, will learn how to taste wines. They serve a slight snack with the wine, so you get more... More

This was the best part of our trip to Florence on honeymoon! We had a brilliant time going out to see the beautiful Tuscan countryside and try the fabulous chianti Classico wine! We made new friends, enjoyed a lovely meal in an amazing setting & came back a bit tipsy! Money very well spent. Recommend completely. No negatives at all.

I expected to taste a lot of very good wines. But I didn't expect a special lunch every day, time to wander around several Tuscan towns, a beautiful hotel, and the camaraderie of the others in the tour group and our guides. All logistics were flawlessly handled... one rainy morning put a damper on our village tour, so an additional... More

After a lesson on wine tasting and our first sample we learnt about the background to Tuscan wines from the excellent tutor (who originated from Finland) before we headed into the Chianti region via a stop for photos at piazza Michelangelo. The tour driver was very knowledgable and gave us plenty more background on the short journey. The 2 vineyards... More

We had an absolutely amazing experience at the wine school doing the 2 hour "Taste of Tuscany" session. We had been unsure whether to use any of our precious two day visit to Florence in a lesson, but I am so so glad we did and would highly recommend it, it was one of the highlights of our visit.

My boyfriend and I are not the most wine-educated people in the world, we just know we enjoy drinking it. I thought it would be a fun departure from museums and churches for the day so I signed us up. This was a GREAT tour! Started with a brief educational piece, followed by a short drive with a talkative and... More

This will be a bit long-winded, but our recent 4 day wine tour deserves it. My wife and I recently went to Rome (3 nights) followed by 5 nights in Tuscany. We are wine fans and didn't want to drive a car. The fast train from Rome to Florence is easy (my first train trip). Once in Florence we went... More

Excellent knowledge of the wines and history. Very informative and fantastic service. I enjoyed all of the wines and the pairing with the cheese was perfect. Our sommelier knew her stuff and made the tasting interactive and informative. There wasn't a full moment! If you like wine, I would definitely recommend that you go and visit this gem of a... More
